ACDC Bassoon Reed
Handmade, high quality beginner, advanced, and blank bassoon reeds
*****Shipping Update: Due to extremely long wait times from the USPS, I will be shipping through UPS for the time being to ensure a quality product -- reeds shouldn't be waiting for long periods of time in a warehouse that is not temperature controlled!
Sanitizing. All reeds are tested at least 3 times over 5 days' time to ensure a quality, stable product, then sanitized and fully dried before sending.
COVID-19 Update. I am doing everything in my power to keep myself and others safe from the virus, but there is no way to sell high-quality bassoon reeds without play testing them first. The CDC has stated that COVID-19 can live on wood surfaces for up to 5 days, so I make sure to not touch my reeds for at least that amount of time prior to sending them to customers. Your safety comes first!
Colors. If you order multiple reeds, I will always send different colors.
Types of reeds.
BEGINNER : Recommended for players with less than one year of experience on the bassoon. These reeds are scraped slightly thinner compared to the intermediate-advanced level in order to provide the same high quality reed, but are a bit more flexible and easier to play on for beginners to the instrument.
INTERMEDIATE-ADVANCED : For the seasoned player, these reeds are my highest quality reeds made with enough flexibility to get a free-blowing sound, but also with enough thickness to produce a warm, deep, resonant tone quality.
BLANKS : For the aspiring reed maker, or the reed maker with no time to actually make reeds, these unfinished, uncut reeds have been wrapped fully and reamed to fit any bocal, but have not been scraped on otherwise. These reeds are not playable until you finish them, but are held to a high standard before selling.
